Nitomortar HB is based on a high quality solvent-free epoxy
resin system. The special lightweight filler is specifically
designed to give excellent hanging properties for vertical
and overhead work. Nitomortar HB is a three-component
material supplied in pre-weighed quantities ready for on-site
mixing and use.
Design criteria

Nitomortar HB*

Nitomortar HB can be applied in sections up to 50 mm

thickness in vertical and overhead locations in a single
application and without the use of formwork. Thicker sections
up to 75 mm are possible in smaller locations, dependent
on the actual configuration of the repair area and the volume
of exposed reinforcing steel.
The material should not be applied at less than 10 mm
thickness. Greater thicknesses than those specified above
can be achieved by the application of subsequent layers.
Larger areas should be applied in a chequerboard fashion.
Consult the local Fosroc office for further information.
Where high compressive strength and abrasion resistance
is required, the use of Nitomortar S is recommended.

Instructions for use



Care should be taken to ensure that Nitomortar HB is

thoroughly mixed to produce a fully homogeneous, trowellable

Clean the surface and remove any dust, unsound material,

plaster, oil, paint, grease, corrosion deposits or algae. Roughen
the surface and remove any laitance by light scabbling or gritblasting. Saw cut or cut back the extremities of the repair
locations to a depth of at least 10 mm to avoid feather-edging
and to provide a square edge. Break out the complete repair
area to a minimum depth of 10 mm up to the sawn edge.
Oil and grease deposits should be removed by steam cleaning,
detergent scrubbing or the use of a proprietary degreaser. The
effectiveness of decontamination should then be assessed
by a pull-off test.
Expose fully any corroded steel in the repair area and remove
all loose scale and corrosion deposits. Steel should be
cleaned to a bright condition paying particular attention to the
back of exposed steel bars. Grit-blasting is recommended for
this process.
Reinforcing steel priming
The cleaned steel should be coated within 3 hours. Apply one
full coat of Nitoprime Zincrich and allow to dry before continuing.
If any doubt exists about having achieved an unbroken coating,
a second application should be made and, again, allowed to
dry before continuing.
Substrate priming

The hardener and base components should be stirred

thoroughly in order to disperse any settlement before mixing
them together. The entire contents of the hardener and base
containers should then be emptied into the mixing vessel and
thoroughly mixed for 3 minutes.
While mixing continuously, the entire bag of aggregate should
then be added slowly and the three components blended
together for a further 2 to 3 minutes, ensuring that the aggregate
is thoroughly wetted out with the mixed resins. Under no
circumstances should part packs be used.
Multi-pack mixing is possible by using a forced action mixer of
suitable capacity e.g. Cretangle or Pennine.
Apply the mixed Nitomortar HB to the prepared substrate by
wood float, pressing firmly into place to ensure positive
adhesion and full compaction. Thoroughly compact the mortar
around any exposed reinforcement.
In restricted locations, or where exposed reinforcing steel is
present, application by gloved hands is an acceptable
alternative but, in all cases, the product must be finished to a
tight surface with a steel trowel.
Nitomortar HB can be used in applications of up to 50 mm
thickness in vertical or overhead locations depending upon
the repair geometry. Thicker sections should be built up in

The substrate should be primed using Nitocote Primer Sealer.

The primer should be mixed in the proportions supplied, adding
the entire contents of the hardener tin to the base tin. The
two components should be thoroughly mixed together for 3

When large areas are being repaired (generally over 2 m2) a

chequerboard application technique is recommended.

The mixed primer should be scrubbed well into the prepared

substrate, taking care that all imperfections in the surface are
properly coated, avoiding ponding in depressions. If the
Nitocote Primer Sealer is absorbed within 30 minutes, a
second coat should be applied before continuing.

It is sometimes possible for smaller repairs to be completed

in greater thicknesses, generally up to 75 mm, in a single
application dependent on the actual configuration of the repair
area and the volume of exposed reinforcing steel. If in doubt
regarding application, consult the local Fosroc office.

Nitomortar HB can be applied as soon as the primer has started

to gel but still has surface tack. This is normally between 30
minutes and 4 hours dependent on the ambient and substrate
temperatures. If Nitocote primer sealer cures hard, a second
application must be made before application of Nitomortar
HB. The usable life of the mixed primer is approximately 60
minutes at 20C or 30 minutes at 35C.

Minimum applied thickness of Nitomortar HB is


Nitomortar HB*
Additional build-up can be achieved by application of multiple
layers. Exposed steel reinforcing bars should be firmly
secured to avoid movement during the application process as
this will affect mortar compaction, build and bond.
Where thicker sections are required, the surface of the
intermediate applications should be scratch-keyed to provide
a suitable surface for subsequent layers. The application of
additional layers should follow between 8 and 24 hours (@ 20C)
after the first application. This time should be reduced at higher
temperatures. Repriming with Nitocote primer sealer and a
further application of Nitomortar HB may then proceed.
If sagging occurs during application, the Nitomortar HB should
be completely removed and reapplied at a reduced thickness
on to the correctly reprimed substrate.

The surrounding parts of the structure may benefit from the

application of a protective coating, thus bringing them up to
the same protective standard as the repair itself. Fosroc
recommend the use of the Nitocote range of epoxy resin,
chemical-resistant, protective coatings.
For surrounding areas not subjected to chemical attack or
physical wear, Fosroc recommend the use of the Dekguard
range of anti-carbonation, anti-chloride protective coatings.
These products provide a decorative and uniform appearance
as well as protecting areas of the structure which might
otherwise be at risk from the environment.
Nitocote epoxy resin protective coatings should be applied
within 24 hours. Dekguard products should not be applied
until the Nitomortar HB is at least 3 days old. For further advice,
consult the local Fosroc office.



Nitomortar HB is finished by the use of a wood float and closed

with a steel trowel wiped with a cloth dampened with Fosroc
Solvent 102. The completed surface should not be overworked.

Nitomortar HB should not be used when the temperature

is below 5C and falling.

Do not mix part packs under any circumstances.

Due to the lightweight nature of Nitomortar HB, the product

should not be used in areas subjected to traffic, point
loading or abrasion.

Nitomortar HB should not be exposed to moving water

during application. Exposure to heavy rainfall prior to the
final set may result in surface scour.

Curing is not necessary for Nitomortar HB.
Nitoprime Zincrich, Nitocote primer sealer and Nitomortar HB
should be removed from tools, equipment and mixers with
Fosroc Solvent 102 immediately after use.
High temperature working
At ambient temperatures above 35C, Nitocote primer sealer
and Nitomortar HB will have shorter pot lives and working lives.
The materials should be stored in the shade or in an airconditioned environment and should not be applied in direct
Overcoating with protective/decorative finishes
Nitomortar HB is extremely durable and resistant to a wide
range of acids, alkalis and industrial chemicals and will provide
excellent protection to the concrete and embedded steel
reinforcement within the repaired locations.

If any doubts arise concerning temperature or substrate

conditions, consult the local Fosroc office.
